We are often encouraged to do more. We are often tempted to do more. More is better, after all. But that is actually not the case in all situations. More is better if you aren't doing anything at all (more of zero is better than zero in many aspects of life) and more of a good thing can often lead to success. However, often times the answer to our problems is not "more" but "different". We need to allow ourselves to be open enough to attempt difficult and risky and uncomfortable and scary alternatives or substitutions to what we are currently doing. The solution to getting beyond a barrier is not always by pushing harder (giving more effort) on the barrier. The actual solution may be to go around it, under it, or even asking for a boost over it.
